LMI’s new Roytronic Metering Pump series was designed with advanced features required by the most demanding metering pump applications. The standard FastPrime™ liquid end makes start-up simple while the AutoPrime™ pumps assure the pump keeps working on Sodium Hypochlorite applications, even in remote installations. The optional degassing liquid-end eliminates “vapor lock” and unnecessary downtime to manually block and bleed the line. Pumps are available for applications up to 250 psi, and with capacities between 0.001 and 2.0 gph. A wide range of wetted material options are available for water treatment chemicals.

Water test kit
Hach Company has acquired the Eclox™ Rapid Response Water Test Kit from Severn Trent Services (STS). Initially designed for military applications, Eclox tests for chemical contamination of water in just four minutes. At the heart of the test kit is the Eclox luminometer for generic identification of the toxicity or purity of a water sample via the Eclox Chemiluminescence Toxicity Test. The technique used by the luminometer is the same as that validated by the USEPA Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program to yield reliable detection of heavy metals, poisons, and chemical warfare agents on site.

Optical brighteners detection
Turner Designs’ Trilogy Laboratory Fluorometer now includes a module for detecting optical brighteners. The Optical Brightener Module easily snaps in and can be purchased with a new Trilogy or as an addition to a previously purchased Trilogy. The company also offers Optical Brightener kits for its 10AU Field Fluorometer, Cyclops-7 & C3 Submersible Fluorometers, C6 Multi-Sensor Platform, and Aquafluor Handheld Fluorometer. Optical brighteners or fluorescent whitening agents are added to products such as laundry soaps, detergents, and cleaning agents. The presence of brighteners in water systems to which wastewater is being discharged can mean failing septic systems, sewage leaks, or complete lack of water treatment.
